Bidding Wars: $200,000 Give or Take [Negotiation]

by Osman Parvez

Preliminary real estate market data for April shows 127 sales in the City of Boulder.   The vast majority sold for asking or more.    The deepest discount was 14.1% less than asking. The biggest premium was 17.9% more than asking.   Talk about a spread.   

Selling or buying?  Your choice of Realtor can't be more critical.   One Boulder buyer paid $200,000 more than asking last month (1526 Sunset).    Another paid $210,000 less than asking (300 Evergreen).    Both properties are in the same price range.
